Methodology Cross-sectional survey. HIV serology rapid test. TP (transgender, transexual and travesti): ≥18 years. – Meeting and work places: seven urban areas in Mexico –( from 3 States: Jalisco, Veracruz and Estado de México) – Puerto Vallarta, Guadalajara, Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl, Ecatepec, Toluca, Veracruz and Coatzacoalcos-Minatitlán. Questionnaire: – Socio-demographic data, risk factors and sexual behaviors. Jointly with Civil society organizations – Efficiency: selection/approach/response (potential participants) Pre and post counseling (including referral to Health services) Two different rapid tests – Two reactive tests = HIV sero-reactive (HIV+) – Any other result = Non-reactive (HIV-)
Results (i) Table1. Sample by city and Trans involved population TP HIV sero-prevalence: 15.83% (IC95% ) Fitted-results (size-cities) 15.21% (IC95% 7.56% %)
Results (ii) Mean age of TP. –Sero-reactive: 33.9 years old (IC 95% ). –Non-reactive 27.1 years old, (IC 95% 25.0 – 29.1). Not statistical differences in socio-economic conditions between those sero-reactive and those non-reactive TP. Lower education level in those sero-reactive. >40% TS (HIV+ and HIV-): sexual work- main $ source. Mean age for sexual relations initiation: 13 years. Use of condom in last sexual relation. –76.2% ( ) of those HIV+. –69.6% ( ) of those HIV-. Main reason for not using condom. – HIV+: mutual agreement. –HIV-: forgot to use it.
Conclusions Sero-reactivity in TP was slightly higher than in 1,110 MSM (same cities-parallel study) but not statistically significant –15.2% TP (IC95% 7.56% %) vs –12.2% MSM (IC95% 6.61% %). TP is at least equally or more affected than MSM by the HIV epidemic TP testing initiatives must be improved and implemented as a priority and permanent strategy –Including reference to health services This results are only applicable for TP in meeting and work places of the seven studied cities.
